    cannaboid effects on the human body are just starting to be understood

    alcohol literally had a huge impact on our early survival and is a great social lubricant

    "The authors assessed the ability of THCP to bind to human cannabinoid receptors found in the endocannabinoid system by sending the compound to a lab to be tested in a tube.

    "The endocannabinoid system's job is to keep our body in homeostasis, or equilibrium, and it regulates everything from sleep to appetite to inflammation to pain and more. When a person smokes marijuana, THC overwhelms the endocannabinoid system, latching on to cannabinoid receptors and interfering with their ability to communicate between neurons.

    "THCP bound strongly to both receptors -- 33 times more than THC does, and 63 times more than another compound called THCV. The finding led the authors to wonder if THCP might explain why some particularly potent cannabis varieties have a stronger effect than can be explained by the presence of THC alone."

    Smoking it isn't as good an idea as taking it in edible form. All things in moderation, including weed.

    Endocannabinoid system
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_system
    The endocannabinoid system remains under preliminary research, but may be involved in regulating physiological and cognitive processes, including fertility,[1] pregnancy,[2] during pre- and postnatal development,[3] appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the pharmacological effects of cannabis.[4][5]

    Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1, first cloned in 1990; and CB2, cloned in 1993. CB1 receptors are found

    I think that these things depend on what you're used to. While we retain capitalism we're going to need all the drugs we can get anyway ('Quickest way out of Manchester', they used to say), and none of 'em do us much good. I've seen some of the results of both.

    Biology is for girls, chemistry and physics are first tier scientific disciplines.
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    You're so funny. What makes you think that I haven't taken chemistry? It is a degree requirement. It also helps a lot when creating various extracts and tinctures from c. sativa.

    That's sad. Those legal pot shops are a rip off anyways. The fatal flaw in granting them licenses is you can grow it yourself and to an extent make it as strong or mild as you prefer.
